Bumping

Just to let everyone know, this is still in effect.
I have made sure a few helpful players got just rewards for their helpfulness.
Anyway, if you find an afk player, using pets or an autoclicker, feel free to report it to a GM.
Of course, we need to catch them in the act, so maybe use facebook or forum chat to get our attention as quickly as possible.
You may send forum PMs as well, but they're not always so timely; however, we may watch reported players at times as well.

The pictures you posted here don't seem to be grinding related, can you please better explain them?
I'm no GM but I'm sure I'm not alone in being interested on good understanding how game rules are to be interpreted so to be sure we respect them. Your explanation of these screenshot might be part of this understanding process :)
Hmm isn't batista a pet? I had read that grinding with balista is break the rules too. You are wining seige xp without play the game so you are cheating. I hate this people that win lvls and skills without play they game because is unfair for the people that plays the game.
Aren't you doing the same? Trying to win levels without the grind, by reporting? I laughed when I saw you could purchase the levels. I'd understand buying gear, gold, well items, but purchasing experience? Lmao

Secondly, sometimes I'm grinding and I dose off. I wake up to my bedroom light being on the entire night, the fan still running, my charger plugged in and switched on but my phone isn't connected and my battery dead.

Third, not on par with rule 13, but rule 7 here. Using third party apps like auto clickers. The main reason anyone would use auto clickers is so they can gain while being afk. Afk grinding (tho not mentioned in the rule) is grinding afk, whether with pets or other means.

Fourth, couldn't players abuse this strange feature by creating an alt, setting him up to grind afk(say on your mom's phone) and reporting him from your main account to gain levels? Surely grinding from lvl 1 to the lvl when you can acquire pets on any new lvl could/would be easier than grinding levels on your main account which is of a much higher lvl, needs much more exp and carries a higher risk of death (or loss) than a new account. What if the alt on mom's phone used auto clickers to grind up faster.

Maybe some gold/certain amount of exp may be a good reward, but I've never really liked the idea of players getting rewarded for reporting others. If you reported someone for breaking the rules & maybe the Dev was in a good mood that day and decided to give you a gift, acceptable. Reporting for the sole purpose of gaining rewards is not healthy.

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with you here but was puzzled by your last sentence. What exactly do you mean by "not healthy"?

Nilez. This point was carefully considered by the GM team when this reward system was established, as other players have already voiced this concern.

Well, how do I put it.. Are you expecting ppl to report to help solve a problem or for their own personal gain?
My experience on a different game, I reported ppl who broke rules/abused glitches etc to keep the game fair, to help make it a better place. I tried to help, with no personal gain.
Kind of like, helping a person out just so you can get something in return. Maybe my choice of words was poor.
Is that enough? Finding it hard to explain.

Yes I understand you better now. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Also, if a player is afk without grinding, sieging, or any action using tools that would require an autoclicker to keep going, then afk is not actually against the rules. At least, not at this tine.
